Decked Out December

From decking the halls to decking your holiday calendar, there is no doubt that December is a hectic time of year. Save some time to simply enjoy the season with the ones you love. There’s no better place to do that than home. We invite you to explore the many seasonal offerings in the area, with our help, of course!

A Christmas Carol: Dinner Show

Your favorite holiday classic is back! A Christmas Carol will be performed on Sunday, December 8 at the Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store. What’s better than dinner and a show? When it’s a Christmas-themed dinner and a show! 

The Phoenix Theatre Company and Pittsboro Roadhouse invite you to kick up your heels and enjoy the show. For one night only, meet Scrooge and his many ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. The best part? You are a part of the cast!
